Student fashion on real people
Designs by Gemma Clements, Rebecca Cotterall, Sirah Nawez, Gemma McClusky and Amy Olley.
I saw this article in Vice magazine and couldn't help but laugh at its truthful irony. So many times the question has been asked: 'How does fashion we see on the catwalk and in magazines relate to what real people wear everyday?' and I suppose this article makes us realise that, to be brutally honest, it doesn't. When would you ever normally see Sue Nicholls, AKA Audrey Roberts walking round the set of Corra in a space age suit?
Some people may argue that this is no joke, but instead a realisation that celebrity culture is leaking into the veins of what it is to dress fashionably, after Lady Gaga and Little Boots. So is this a projection of Primark in 2012? Maybe we will just have to wait and see...
